With lots of help from the forum* I have managed to get the below script (attached): creating a helical stair based on a custom footprint. I am using an Adaptive Component (attached) placed on points along the helix, which I want to ‘Loft’ to create a solid or polysurface (Sweep won’t work as the underside has varying angles).
All seems to be working fine but I don’t understand why there are gaps in the Loft? I understand that it has something to do with the Chop.List node. I understood that the “Chop.List” node is required to define when the correct number of placement points is reached. However it seems to also ‘chop’ the loft function.
Strangely I am able to create a more continuous Loft by slowly increasing the “chop number” and re-run the script each time.
Can someone explain/ help me?
Thanks a lot.
